removing glue from outdoor carpet on porch


I am trying to find something to remove glue from outdoor carpet that was put on my porch at least 15 years ago(not by me). I went to Lowes and the salesman said get a big scraper. I just went ahead and put tile on the back screened in porch. it looks nice and I like it, but this front porch has to be cleaned up! Does anyone know any short cuts?

I presume it is on concrete. Buy a long handled scraper that has a replaceable razor blade made for scraping floors. It may go faster if you keep it wet while you work.
