Hello

the first thing to do is bleed the clutch hydraulics again and ensure that you replenish the all fluid in the system and get any trapped air out

I favour having a clear hose from the nipple to a jar 1/2 full of old fluid and with the nipple closed your assistant pushes the pedal up and down a few times, then holds it down whilst you then crack open the nipple and close it again whilst fluid is still flowing.

you may have to use a vacuum or pressure bleeder to draw the fluid out and ensure all the air is out
