The defender has thrived under Dalglish's management.
Skrtel told LFC Weekly: "To be very honest I didn't know an awful lot about Kenny. I was very young when he was the manager for the first time.
"But in the four years I've been at the club I have seen him here and have learned about the history of the club and the part he's played in it. Now I know a lot more about him.
"Appointing him (permanently) was definitely the best option. I'm happy because he is a nice person and a great manager. I can see the future under him being very good."
