Celtic manager Neil has hailed his side's Champions League qualification win in Sarajevo as a "brilliant" start to the new season.
The Hoops recovered from the concession of an early goal to run out 3-1 winners as Mikey Johnston, Odsonne Edouard and Scott Sinclair all found the target to put them in control of the tie.
The clubs meet again in the return leg at Celtic Park next Wednesday.
Although Johnston and new signing Boli Bolingoli suffered injuries, Lennon was happy with the result.
"It's a great position to be in," he told told BBC Scotland. "Considering where we are, so early and against really decent opposition who are tactically smart and a big threat at set plays, it's a great performance."
Speaking of the injured duo, Lennon said: "Mikey felt a twinge in his quad. So we're hoping it's not too serious. Boli rolled his ankle in the first half and it just got progressively worse.
"We had to fit a few square pegs in round holes because of where we are with the squad. But the attitude, fitness of the players and quality of the goals made it a really good start."
