I think Kosta Nedeljkovic can't be referred to as Ned by McGinn or in Scotland because Ned is a non-educated delinquent in the Scottish language.

I think have to be aware of type of nicknames because they can be offensive or misunderstood.

We don't need to make up a load of nicknames. Just use a player's actual name?

Has Ned actually signed yet?

Ned?

Ned Ryerson?

Ned, Ned Ryerson.  That’s what happened to Kostas he was punched by an opponent called Connor’s.

Or he could be called Ned because that's part of his surname?  Not everything needs to have such sinister connotations.

I think need to agree on what he will be called. Personally if Nedeljkovic isn't an issue then people should respect his surname and use that.
There's been some discussions on nicknames you see for players and what people prefer to use and also I would anticipate people not choosing to use his full name but would call him Ned.

Ned Nederlander, was one of the three protagonists in the 1986 western comedy Three Amigos!


 

Bit of a left field suggestion this, but perhaps we could call him Kosta Nedeljkovic?

Exactly…. Kosta Nedeljkovic the Serbian Cafu

Is it effectively a completely silent 'j' for a thick as pig shit English speaker?

Yes, as in Bosko Jankovic (all hail, RIP)

My uneducated tongue can't fit it in. Is it like Nuh-del-yu-kov-itch? I get the J being a Y at the start of a name, but I don't know how to fit it in between the ending of the L sound and the start of the K.

Listening to the 2 pronunciations on YouTube (if they're reliable), you pretty much don't hear the J/Y, so I can get away with forgetting it exists.

I think it's Ned-lyer-kovich, although when googled it's shown as Nuh-del-kovich.
