Wotte suggested that Scotland needs better facilities to produce players due to the harsh weather conditions.
Lennon rebuffed that, too, saying: "I take umbrage on the point with facilities.
"He [Wotte] was saying that we get four months of rain and snow. We've been having that here for 200 years, but 25 or 30 years ago we were producing [Danny] McGrain, [Kenny] Dalglish, [Gary] McAllister and [John] Collins.
"My point is, why are we not producing those players now?"
Another point Wotte questioned was in relation to Lennon's suggestion that managers, ex-players and youth development specialists, should be called in to design a better football template.
The Dutchman, a former Southampton manager, said he was stunned that Lennon did not know Celtic's head of youth, Chris McCart, was already part of a performance panel to give feedback on the Scottish game.
Lennon added: "When I was talking about a panel of people, I was talking about the game in general, not the SFA.
"I'm well aware that Chris McCart is on a panel working with Mark.
"I don't need educated on the Scottish game; I've been in the game here 13 years at the top end.
"And I certainly don't need to know what's going on at my club because I know it from top to bottom, so maybe Mark should've picked up the phone."
