As a player Dempsey, who was known as a hard man, was most associated with Hamilton Academical, with whom he had two spells, and Raith Rovers, although he also turned out for Stirling Albion, Albion Rovers and Larkhall Thistle.
He had a sole season back as manager at Hamilton, following the departure of John Lambie to Partick Thistle, although the club finished far adrift at the foot of the Scottish Premier Division and he was dismissed. He was subsequently announced as manager of Fauldhouse United in 1992 and later returned to the Accies as assistant boss under Chris Hillcoat in 2003.
