Question

Hello,
I have recently removed a brick design paneling from my kitchen wall. It was apparently put up with glue and nails. After pulling the paneling off, I noticed that in some areas the top layer of the drywall has peeled off slightly,but not bad. And now I know why people in some cases use this sort of paneling to decorate an area-so to cover up imperfections! There is an opening that I will have to close off and small holes I will need to patch- which I am quite sure how to repair. So, How should I remove the brown hard glue which is stuck on the drywall? I know once I remove it I can use joint compund to smooth out the walls and then texture the drywall and knockdown with a finishing knife. Right? Help....
