Post Function ScriptRunner - Error on checking custom filed and assigning Status to issue on Create

During a issue Create, i want to check a Custom field (single select drop down) if specific value is selected we want to set issue status to a specific status.

I have added follwoing as apost function in create transition

cfValues['Submit for Review?']?.value == 'YES, Submit for Review'

and if this is true then set issue to "MGR Review" as a status

the post function script runs but i see following error

2017-06-01 08:59:26,898 ERROR [utils.WorkflowUtils]: In-depth checking of each condition follows to determine why the action was not allowed.
2017-06-01 08:59:26,898 ERROR [utils.WorkflowUtils]:
It seems that you have tried to perform a workflow operation (MGR Review) that is not valid for the current state of this issue (ITCR-41). The likely cause is that somebody has changed the issue recently, please look at the issue history for details.

Is there a valid transition from the status after the create transition to the "MGR Review" status in your workflow? Can you attach a screenshot of your workflow please?

Also what version of ScriptRunner and JIRA are you using?

Is there a more detailed error message in the full atlassian-jira.log file?
