Dalglish replaced Hodgson as Liverpool manager in January and the latter has since taken control of West Bromwich Albion.
The Scot told the Mail on Sunday: "Roy Hodgson was a friend of mine before he took the Liverpool job, he was a friend when he was at Anfield and he's still a friend of mine now.
"But we'll both be competitive on the touchline."
