Could be rear wheel cylinder leaking or master cylinder gone. If you have changed the front brake pads it's possible that when you squeezed the calipers back it has forced the seal back inside the master cylinder

First thing to try is get some one to help you bleed it at all four corners. Person inside pumps the pedal up and holds on pressure. Open the nipple and once fluid stops coming out close it. Repeat several times on each corner. Sounds like you hve run the resevoir dry can be quite hard to get a pedal if thats the case. Is the pedal just going straight to the floor when your bleeding or can you feel it pushing the fluid through?

Shouldn't need to bleed the brakes when changing discs and pads but I would bleed it again to rule it out. If you can get someone to help you,clamp off all four brake hoses at the wheels and have someone sat inside,get them to pump the brake pedal and hold it when it's solid. Let off the claps on the brake hoses one at a time, if the pedal sinks more at one wheel than the others when you release the clamps then that's where the air will be

Check the brake lines for leaks.
Changing the discs and pads requires manipulating the brake line so easy to break a 11+ year old pipe.

Did you clean the carriers properly? Do the pads show any sign of overheating. If they are sticking they could be overheating the fluid hence the poor pedal

everything works as it should . I just think it master cylinder has failed as works ok at normal journeys just at very low speed it fails every now and again.

Are you sure the abs isnt kicking in. Pedal wil vibrate and go down quite far mostly at junctions at low speed?
