Removal of Vinyl Floor

I am laying a Porcelain floor in my kitchen and foyer. Our present vinyl floor tested negative for asbestos so I removed it, however we cannot get all of the floor off - some of the previous adhesive is still down as well as some of the floor backing. The floor is supported by 1" plywood. We purchased concrete board subfloor and plan to lay the subfloor over the remaining adhesive, using mortor and screwing every 6 inches. Then lay the tile on top of the subfloor. Will the old adhesive on the original plywood floor cause any problems?

No..that will be fine..the thin set is there to support the board and fill any voids there may be underneath..that would cause the board to move up and down as it is walked on..the old adhesive is no problem.
