Removed vinil tiles what to do next?


I have removed vinil (hard) tiles. It seems that they were glued with some kind of asphalt glue, it looks like that. I would like to tile over this surface but i am not sure if the concrete surface should to be scraped or if I can lay ditra over that. It seems that the glue has penetrated deep into the concrete.

That "glue" is most likely cutback, which contains asbestos.
