"Of course, it is nice recognition," Lennon told reporters.
"Roberto Martinez was favourite yesterday and I'm favourite today, it could be someone else tomorrow.
"But all of it is speculation. I have a job here, I have a great job, a great set of players, a great support, so I am pretty happy here."
After a successful playing career lasting 21 years, Lennon became manager of Celtic in 2010 and has won two Scottish Premier League titles and one Scottish Cup since.
