To remove the glue use adhesive reomver or a semi-paste paint remover (they are nearly the same thing). To prep the cement for painting wash it with a 10% solution of Muriactic Acid followed by a rinse of TSP.
Using a plastic pail pour the acid into the water (not the other way around). Apply with a fiber brush, scrub, then rinse with the TSP solution (about 2 oz. per gallon of water). If possbile hose both solutions off the surface afterward.
