Lennon was appointed as St.Mirren manager in the summer of 2010, and after his first season which saw the side struggling in the league, this season St.Mirren are now battling for a top six place.
Speaking to the official St.Mirren website, Lennon said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have agreed a two year extension to my contract as manager of St Mirren. St Mirren are a club of good standing with a proud 134 year history. The current board have performed well in their duties to have the Club debt free, a wonderful modern stadium and dedicated training facilities.
“We are sitting in the top six of the SPL and that gives us a great platform to build on from this day forward.”
Lennon added: “It certainly wasn’t a difficult decision to make. I’m very thankful and grateful that we managed to get it all ironed out as quickly as we did.”
“I’ve been here for about 16 months now and I believe that we have started an exciting journey towards our ambitions of making this Club a regular top six side with a reputation for playing good quality football and developing fresh, young talent.
“I want to express my gratitude to the players, my backroom staff, the directors and the fans who have all helped me in my duties here at the Club and for giving me the opportunity to further my ambition and vision for the Club over the next two-and-a-half years.”
St.Mirren currently sit in fifth place in the SPL level on points with fourth placed St.Johnstone, who have a game in hand, and a point ahead of Hearts in sixth place.
