Renegotiating his contract was not even on the menu as the major shareholder and the manager chewed the fat in one of their regular get-togethers.
But Lennon did receive a very welcome bonus when his side defeated Hearts 1-0 to add to the 2-0 demolition of Motherwell and the 3-2 victory over Spartak Moscow to complete a memorable triple-decker of wins which left the Hoops boss more than satisfied.
"It was a tough week, but very rewarding," was Lennon's succinct summation of the feast of football on which he has just gorged.
"They are always really tough games to come back to after Champions League nights. So I was thrilled with that result against Hearts."
His three courses of good results will keep him going until he can get all of his players back around the table in just under a fortnight after many of them have completed their tours of duty with their respective countries.
Top of the SPL, two points clear of nearest rivals Hibs, over who they have a game in hand, and sitting in second spot in Champions League Group G, gives Lennon a good vantage point from which to consider his club's position.
And he likes what he sees.
The main objective yesterday was to ensure they did not fall from the high on which they have been riding since returning from Moscow in midweek.
The temptation might have been to flex his muscle by utilising the strong squad which is now at his disposal.
With players of the calibre of Joe Ledley, Beram Kayal, Miku and Lassad Nouioui desperate to get a start, there was certainly no shortage of high-quality options open to Lennon.
So far, in the 15 games played this season across three different competitions, he has used 29 players.
However, Lennon has been trying to establish some kind of consistency in performance. And one way to encourage this is to have consistency of selection.
There was only change from the starting XI at Motherwell to the line-up which faced Spartak in midweek – Georgios Samaras in for James Forrest.
Likewise, Lennon made only one change from the Moscow marvels when he put out his side to face Hearts, Scott Brown allowed time to recover from his hip problem, with Forrest on from the start.
With the luxury of knowing Celtic do not have another game until a week on Saturday, when they travel to face St Mirren, Lennon knew he could ask this group of players to dig deep once again.
And the victory over Hearts – secured when Samaras latched on to a Kris Commons through-ball and slotted his shot between the legs of keeper Peter Enckelman, who had replaced the injured Jamie MacDonald midway through the first half – vindicated the manager's strategy.
Ironically, it was one of Celtic's best performers, Efe Ambrose, who almost teed up Hearts for a late equaliser when he made a hash of playing the ball out from the back in stoppage time.
Andy Driver could not capitalise, however, and it was left to Lennon to educate the negligent Nigerian.
The manager revealed: "I had a word with Efe and told him you can't do that at any level of football. We might have got away with one there, but he has been exceptional."
It would have been harsh on the Hoops had the spoils been shared. And it is the measure of Celtic's superiority in the SPL that they knocked Motherwell off top spot with such ease then followed up by effectively neutralising the side many considered would push them hardest this season while fitting in a Champions League victory on the road between domestic fixtures.
From his own exhaustive experience, Lennon knows how tough it has been, both physically and mentally, and had nothing but praise for his players.
He said: "It has been a big, big week. Motherwell was probably the best performance we have had for a while, and the Hearts game was always going to be a danger because of the fallout from Tuesday night in Moscow.
"We have got through it and won, and I didn't think we ground it out against Hearts.
"Some of the football we played was decent, but there was a little lack of energy at times, and I fully understand that.
"You could see the fatigue kicking in after about an hour, and we tried to get some subs on just to freshen it up a bit.
"There were players out there almost running on empty.
"But, I have to say, the players who played on Tuesday got through the game against Hearts remarkably well."
One man who did show signs of fatigue was Gary Hooper, celebrating his 100th appearance for the Hoops, but failing to add to his 60 goals
"Gary did look a bit tired, but he has played a helluva lot of football recently," said Lennon.
"You want to keep him on because he is a goalscorer.
"But we thought, with 20 minutes to go, he had run his course and needed a rest."
