The Lurgan-born manager said: "It is a new contract but there is no change in the remuneration and there is no change in the way the deal is, in terms of length.
"It is still a one-year rolling contract, it is just there is a few legal stipulations and conditions that I wanted tweaked a little bit. The club have agreed to do that and I signed it this morning.
"Unfortunately for me, it is not a bumper contract as was reported but it is nice thinking that way.
"The rolling contract works for both parties, that is the way it was for Martin O'Neill and Gordon Strachan and I am no different.
"There are other stipulations in the contract that I have agreed to but in terms of remuneration it is the same as it was."
Forwards Georgios Samaras (toe), James Forrest (sciatica), Derk Boerrigter (ankle), Anthony Stokes (calf) and Kris Commons (groin) are all doubtful for the visit of Inverness in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday,
Lennon admitted the injury crisis among his forwards has come at a bad time as the Scottish champions look to rescue their Champions League hopes against Shakhter Karagandy next Wednesday night.
Celtic trail 2-0 from Tuesday's first-leg play-off at the Astana Arena in Kazakhstan.
Lennon is confident that the Hoops can make amends in front of their own fans.
"We didn't have any luck," he said. "We created and missed some great chances.
"The only disappointment was the first goal which we should have defended better but for the majority of the game we were the superior team.
"The attitude was very good and on another night we would have won by one or two goals, so we know where we are in the tie, it is far from over.
"I think the players are frustrated and angry, but they are not down and they want to turn things around."
