Last week, Jordan said of Routledge: "He went, he grabbed the money, and now he's at Villa not getting in the first team, just like he didn't get in the Spurs team, just like he didn't get in the Portsmouth team and just like he didn't get in the Fulham team."
"I am part of a big club here and I want to play more. We all make decisions in our careers - he made a decision to buy Palace when people at the time might have said that was a bad idea. But it has turned out alright for him.
"Everyone has got to take their own path in life. You can't make decisions for other people.
"And you also have to make decisions to test yourself."
