Dalglish brought the Uruguay international to the Anfield club from Ajax back in 2011 as Fernando Torres left the club to join Chelsea.
Suarez went on to score 82 goals in 133 appearances for Liverpool before his summer transfer to Barcelona.
And Dalglish was full of praise for the 27-year-old striker as the Scot presented him with his Golden Shoe award on Wednesday night.
“It was more than an honour for him to play under me, it was an honour for me to coach him,” said Dalglish.
“So much so that, despite having a golf match scheduled for today, I didn’t think twice when they invited me to present him with the Golden Shoe.”
Dalglish added: “He’s an amazing footballer.”
