But he has been both star player and manager of the club.
And the club have revealed the tier, which sits opposite their £60million new development will be re-named.
Dalglish signed for Liverpool from Celtic in 1977 for £440,000.
A club statement said: “Liverpool FC are delighted to announce Anfield’s Centenary Stand is to be renamed The Kenny Dalglish Stand in recognition of the 66-year-old’s unique contribution to the club.
“The decision has been taken by the Reds’ ownership, led by principal owner John W Henry, to honour the special status Dalglish holds at Anfield in the club’s 125th anniversary year.
“The Scot’s Liverpool love affair has spanned nearly four decades, beginning back in 1977 when he initially moved to Merseyside from Celtic, through to the present day where he currently holds the position of non-executive board director.”
The club are celebrating their 125th anniversary next season and wanted to step up their celebrations by marking his contribution on Merseyside where he won six league titles and three European Cups.
The club added: “Liverpool Football Club is blessed to have had many figures of significance all contribute to its illustrious history – and they are also rightly honoured in various different ways.
“Off the field, his contribution is simply immeasurable to the club and the city of Liverpool because of the leadership role he played in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster and the support he and his family have provided over the years to the relatives of those who lost their lives.”
