Ruined my brakes

So replaced the rear shoes on my 1998 Clio as they had never been done and all was well until I was attaching the last spring. One of the shoes wasn't seated against the piston correctly so when I hooked the spring in it pulled into the rubber around the cylinder and hydraulic fluid spewed everywhere. I put the rubber back on the cylinder and readjusted the the shoe and got it in there properly. When I went to test the brakes I found the pedal travels all the way to the floor before engaging the brakes but if the car is turned on the pedal feels normal?! Also, pulled the handbrake on, something popped and now the handbrake doesn't work.
