The vice-captain was an unused substitute in the midweek win over Stoke and the Scot admits it could act as a huge lift to have him available again.
Dalglish said: "He's delighted to be back. Carra's a very strong character. He's very important in the dressing room and when he's fit he'll be very important on the pitch as well.
"For us it's a bonus to have Jamie Carragher back in amongst the squad."
