The Bhoys went into the fixture on the back of defeats to Barcelona in the Champions League and Kilmarnock in the Premier League and Lennon had demanded an improved effort from his players which was they produced as evident in the scoreline.
"I got everything I wanted,” said Lennon. "It was a fantastic response.
"It was a difficult couple of days for myself, scratching my head as to where that performance (against Killie) came from but we were back to our best and some of the football and the pace they played at was of a very high order.
"It was a big game, St Johnstone were going very well so to win the game so emphatically was testament to the quality of the players and their attitude.
"We moved the ball around quickly, we were aggressive in our pressing and tackling and that is the sort of team I want to see week-in, week-out.
"I enjoyed watching the team tonight and I hope that is a marker for, I hope, a concerted period of good performances, that is what I am demanding from the team."
