Lennon has led Celtic back into the title hunt and moved them to within four points of league leaders Rangers thanks to seven consecutive wins.
The Bhoys ensured they won their two games in hand over Rangers to close in on their fierce rivals, culminating in a 2-0 win over St Johnstone last weekend.
Rangers meanwhile have slipped up against St Johnstone and Kilmarnock in recent weeks to open the door up for Celtic, and with the Old Firm derby around the corner offering an opportunity to narrow the gap further, McNeil was full of praise for Lennon’s efforts this season.
“I was interested in how the mix of players would get together as a team and Neil has performed a wee bit of a miracle there, he really has,” said McNeill.
“When he makes a change he seems to get a turn from the players and to be quite frank, he has been a great success, I really think he has performed brilliantly – Things look good for them.
He added: “Celtic are sitting in a powerful position and this part of the season is one that proves if they are capable of winning the league.
“This is often when teams lose their way but at the moment Celtic look positive. They look as if they are playing well enough to get to the top of the league. When you come to the turn of the year, you have the Old Firm game, which is always important.
“A result in that game would work wonders for Celtic.”
Celtic will be without defender Daniel Majstorovic for the game after the Swedish interntaion suffered a broken cheekbone in the win over St. Johnstone that has ruled him out until well into the new year.
