Lennon said that he is not yet feeling any pressure and highlighted Sir Alex Ferguson's reign at Manchester United, which did not start well.
"I don't feel it and that's me being completely honest," PA Sport quotes Lennon as saying. "I'm a very positive person. There has been a lot of speculation about my role and my ability with the results we have had and that's part and parcel of being a manager. Every other manager has been through that at some stage.
"Even look at the great Sir Alex Ferguson. In his first three years at Man United he goes through a nine-game winless streak. It took him seven years to win his first Premier League and there were a lot of people questioning his skills and ability and now he is renowned as one of the best managers in the world."
St Mirren are currently 11th in the league.
