Ray Dempsey has been installed as the early favourite to become the next Mayo Senior Football manager.

The back to back county title winning Knockmore manager is the 6/4 favourite with Paddy Power to replace James Horan as Mayo boss.

Horan stepped down earlier this evening less than 24 hours after the eight-point loss, bringing to an end a second four-year term.

Former All-Ireland U21 Winning Mayo manager Mike Solan is 9/4 to succeed Horan.

Elsewhere, the bookies have both Maurice Sheridan and Jim McGuinness installed at 4/1 to become the next Mayo manager.

Other names mentioned for the position are Sean Deane, Kevin McStay and Malachy O'Rourke.
