"The courage and dignity shown by the Hillsborough families and survivors is an example to all of us," the England captain said in a statement.
"Speaking as someone whose family directly suffered, I know the pain and hurt will remain.
"However, I hope that today's [Wednesday] report helps bring some comfort, now that everyone knows what happened on that day."
And Dalglish also welcomed the publication of the truth about the Hillsborough disaster and called for justices for the families affected.
The Scot, in his first spell as Reds boss, was in charge of the side for the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989 at Sheffield Wednesday's ground when 96 supporters died.
Dalglish was heavily involved in supporting the families in the aftermath of the tragedy and attending numerous funerals - including four in one day.
It ultimately took its toll as he quit Anfield 21 months later with the emotional stress being a significant factor in his decision to walk away from the club.
"Very positive outcome. 23 yrs waiting for the truth next step justice," Dalglish wrote on Twitter.
