Ned is a derogatory term applied to certain young people in Scotland, akin to the term chav in England. The stereotypical view of a ned is a white adolescent male, of working class background, who wears fake Burberry, who engages in hooliganism, petty criminality, loutish behaviour, underage drinking and smoking or general anti-social behaviour. They are often assumed to be unemployed.
The Collins English Dictionary defines ned as "a derogatory term for a young working-class person who dresses in casual sports clothes", although this omits the hooligan element.
