The former Celtic manager was speaking in defence of his former Hoops captain.
A lot has been said in the wake of the UEFA Champions League exit.
Lennon, his players and the club as a whole have taken a lot of criticism from pundits, journalists and supporters. Much of it has been fair and it was inevitable after such a high profile failure.
Strachan though feels there is no manager better equipped to lead Celtic through this tumultuous time.
"I’ve seen people who look unflappable during television interviews and then go home and crumble and cry themselves to sleep.
"Neil might not be as good on the telly as some of those but, trust me, on the inside he’s as cool as anyone you’ll meet. He’s a way of walking through chaos."
Celtic have a favourable fixture this weekend that could allow them to reboot and prepare for challenges ahead. The visit of lower league Dunfermline Athletic in the Scottish League Cup shouldn't pose too many problems for the Hoops.
If Lennon can successfully navigate that and get through a cup round they can move into next week's UEFA Europa League play-off with optimism.
The 'chaos' Strachan describes will soon subside if the side can reach the group stages of that competition and make the signings they need in critical positions.
There's no doubt it has been a difficult week for everyone at Celtic, but fans will be hoping they've taken some of the constructive criticism on board and can still achieve their big aims this season with Lennon at the helm.
