"It must be hard when your dad has been texted to say he's been sacked," Ince Sr told Sky Sports News. "I was actually on a course so I didn't know it had happened until my wife told me.
"She wondered why I was in a good mood. It wasn't nice and it wasn't the best way to do it. I had a good relationship with Karl Oyston and to do it that way wasn't the right way, for me.
"I don't like the window and Tom made his decision to go to Palace at about 10.30 that evening. To ask a kid to make a decision like that in such a short space of time is difficult."
Palace are expected to hand Ince his debut in next Saturday's clash with West Bromwich Albion.
