However the Lurgan-born Hoops boss has played down speculation of a move away from Parkhead, insisting he sees no reason why his status would change.
Celtic made it into the knockout stages of Europe's top club competition with an impressive run of results including a memorable win over Barcelona - however their journey came to an end on Wednesday night at the hands of Serie A champions Juventus in Turin.
The team's chief executive, Peter Lawwell, admitted the Northern Irish manager could now attract interest from other clubs.
But speaking ahead of this weekend's Scottish league clash with Ross County in Dingwall, Lennon said: "It (speculation) makes no difference to me.
"I am the manager of Celtic and I am one of the privileged few who have been lucky enough to do this job. I enjoy it, I love what I do.
"I can't stop speculation about players or myself but at this current period I am Celtic manager and I don't see any reason for that to change in the future.
"Does it flatter you? It just means that you might be doing a decent job along the way."
