Wordpress PHP if Statement not working correctly

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Below I have a piece of code in which I'm certain I'm doing something very stupid, as does come with working on a Saturday.
I have in my functions.php a declared true/false variable. If the drop down is set to yes, or true, then it does display the text "Test" and then input the code for the wordpress comment engine (The comment section does not appear)

The second part, if it is not equal to 'yes', then it returns a seperate DIV tag. This also works.

So the IF statement seems to be working, but it just does not seem to be working with the <?php comments_template(); ?> WordPress hook.

Any Ideas?

<?php if (get_option('console_engine') <> 'yes')
	echo "Test <?php comments_template(); ?>";
		echo "<div id='test-root'></div>";
