You probably have some air trapped in the clutch hydraulic system. These things can be a bear to bleed properly.

Try pumping the clutch pedal about 100 times or more. This is not a joke. It often works.

If it doesn't work, take it to a shop that has a Phoenix Injector. This is a device that forces fluid in to the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder & forces air out of the clutch master cylinder.

If the problem is still present after you've done the above, suspect a mechanical problem.

Yes i agree with knuckles you may have air in line still. Were is the clucth padle releasing at top are bottom? You may try pumping clucth pedal fast, on top but make sure you take your foot off pedal and pump it few times and let it sit. You should be able to build up a good pedal that way. Good luck--Dave------
