As was first reported in the Liverpool Echo in April, Dalglish will assume a senior role at the Liverpool Academy and will also act as a club ambassador, working with the commercial side of the business around the world.
Managing Director Christian Purslow commented: “In our very first meeting Rafa and I agreed that we wanted to try and bring Kenny back to the club to help Rafa really drive forward our Academy which is at the heart of our plans for the future.
"We are delighted he has agreed to join us and I am sure he will be very successful in his new role back at the club.”
