Chris Sutton has named Rangers trio James Tavernier, Scott Arfield and Daniel Candeias in his Scottish Premiership Team of the Weekend, while three Celtic players have joined the Gers stars in the lineup.

Steven Gerrard's men picked up a stunning 5-0 win on Sunday as they thrashed Hamilton. After taking an 2-0 lead less than two minutes after breaking the deadlock, it was Arfield who added a third with a thunderous strike from outside the box which flew into the roof of the net at some speed.

 

Tavernier made it four from the penalty spot. It was the right-back's 10th league goal of the campaign. And while several have been from the spot, that is unquestionably a remarkable tally for the defender, who has also contributed 10 assists in the league this season.

Candeias provided the assist for the fifth, but was superb all afternoon as Rangers made it back-to-back 5-0 wins in the week, having beaten Kilmarnock by the same scoreline in the Scottish Cup.

Kieran Tierney marked his return to the side with an excellent performance, so it is little surprise that he has been included in Sutton's lineup, while Odsonne Edouard has also made the cut after his brace in the win. He scored a sumptuous free-kick to help take his league tally to 11 this term.

And the final Old Firm name in the team is Ewan Henderson, who marked his first start for the Hoops with a man of the match display. It is clear that the youngster has an incredibly bright future ahead of him and Rodgers must surely now be considering using him more often moving forward.

With that in mind, here is a look at Sutton's TOTW in full...
