• A new tri-component gel based on gellan gum, glycerol and halloysite is proposed.
• The nanocomposite hydrogel has tuneable mechanical and biocompatible features.
• The physico-chemical characterization reveals the gel morphology and composition.
• The developed hydrogel is suitable for soft tissue engineering applications.
