Dalglish's second term as Reds manager ended in May 2012 despite League Cup success after the club finished eighth in the Premier League.
Dalglish said: "It is an honour and privilege to be asked to return to Liverpool as a Director of the Club. I have always said if there is anything I could do to help this Club I would make myself available - when the call came I had no hesitation.
"Liverpool has given me and my family so much since we came here just over 36 years ago and my priority is and will always be to have the Club's best interests at heart."

Liverpool have reportedly issued their club staff with a foul-mouthed guide, including incendiary racist and homophobic words, in a bid to better police unacceptable language on matchdays.
The handbook apparently also advises against employees referring to female fans as a "queen" or "princess" or urging anyone visiting Anfield to "man up".
The Merseyside club said they wanted to educate staff about offensive terms concerning religion, race, sexual orientation and gender.
The guide will not be issued to the players or coaching staff, though.
The Reds were widely condemned for their defence of Luis Suarez before he received an eight-game ban and £40,000 fine for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra in 2011.
Liverpool have attempted to quash speculation about star player Luis Suarez's future at Anfield by insisting that the player will not be sold.
A Liverpool spokesperson said: "Luis Suarez is not for sale. Neither Luis or his representatives have communicated these feelings directly to Liverpool.
"The club remains supportive of Luis and expect him to honour his contract. The club will not be making any further comment at this stage."
Suarez reportedly told media in his native Uruguay today that he wanted to leave the club because he doesn't "feel comfortable here anymore".
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has confirmed he wants to leave the club claiming he does not feel "comfortable here anymore".
The Uruguayan striker told a press conference it was a good time for a change of environment, arguing that he has not "been judged as a player but based on other things".
"It is a difficult moment for me, my coach and my colleagues know that they (the media ) didn't treat me well. Because of the paparazzi I could not go in my garden, I could not go to the supermarket."
Suarez insisted his current club has nothing to do with his unhappiness:
"It's nothing against Liverpool, on the contrary, I feel very comfortable at the club, but I have a daughter and I do not want to hear bad things about her father.
"My reason for leaving is not the money. It's my family and image. I don't feel comfortable here anymore."
Suarez's future has been subject to intense speculation since his 10-game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
David Cameron said his own intervention in Luis Suarez's 10 match ban for biting an opponent was merely that of a "concerned father" and added that the player's punishment was a matter for the Football Association.
The Prime Minister said earlier this week: "I think it would be very understandable if (the panel) took into account the fact that high-profile players are often role models."
The FA stated the standard three-match ban for violent conduct was "clearly insufficient" in Suarez's case when announcing he had been charged.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers claimed that that remarks from both Cameron and the FAhad affected the impartiality of the independent panel hearing his case.
Mr Cameron told BBC Radio Five Live this morning: "I made my own views clear just as a dad watching the game. I've got a seven-year-old son who just loves watching football and when players behave like this it just sets the most appalling example to young people in our country."
Pressed on whether a 10-match ban was appropriate for the offence, he added: "That's up to the FA, it's not my decision."
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has until 6pm this evening to respond to the FA's charge of violent conduct. The charge follows Suarez biting Chelsea player Branislav Ivanovic on Sunday at Anfield.
The FA confirmed the charge on Monday, saying in a statement the incident was not seen by the match officials and has therefore has to be reviewed afterwards. The FA says the normal three match ban will be insufficient and they will convene an Independent Regulatory Commission on Wednesday.
