A Wee Scottish Riddle

While exploring the wild highlands of Scotland,
Crazy Rob was captured by hostile wood fairies.

Smazze, the powerful chief of the fairies told him he could make one final statement,
which would determine how he would die.

If the statement he made was false, he would be boiled in water.

If the statement were true, he would be fried in oil.

Crazy Rob found neither of this options too his liking,
so he made a statement that got him out of this seemingly impossible situation.

What is the one statement he could make to save himself?

The problem with fairies !

No I meant fried in water, however, I just got it.

The answer is (I think!) : "I WILL BE BOILED IN WATER"
To make the answer true they would have to boil him in water, however if his statement is true they stated they would fry him in oil. If they were to fry him in oil then his statement would have been true, which it was not. So they cannot do either.
