Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has poked fun at Anthony Stokes after the Blackburn Rovers striker was fined £196,000 for headbutting an Elvis impersonator (The Guardian).

Stokes spent time on loan to Palace during Jordan's tenure, but scored just once in 13 Eagles appearances.

And Jordan, tweeting from Marbella, responded to the news of Stokes' fine as follows: "That's roughly what I paid Anthony Stokes at CPFC for impersonating a footballer."

 Stokes went on to score 24 goals for Hibernian the following campaign, earning a move to Scottish giants Celtic.

And the Irishman enjoyed a largely successful six years in Glasgow, where he scored 76 goals in 192 games and won four straight Premiership titles.

Since returning to England with Blackburn last summer, however, Stokes has found life much tougher going, and was this week linked with a move to Polish side Jagiellonia Bialystok (The Scottish Sun).

As for Jordan, well the 49 year old left Palace in 2010 after the club went into administration, and is yet to return to football.

Was Stokes as bad as Jordan makes out at Crystal Palace?
