Crack investigator SCOTT ROSS has nothing but admiration for MICHAEL JACKSON after working with his defence team throughout the pop star's recent child molestation trial.

Ross has been credited with gathering information that aided Jackson's acquittal, but he insists the client should be the one getting all the praise.

The crafty private detective admits the King of Pop was ever the professional in court and was one of the best clients he has ever worked for.

He tells US news show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, "He would grab Post-It notes and write something down.

"I've been involved in hundreds of cases and he is one of three people who have thanked me... He's a decent human being."
