Yep. And lots of MEK. You want to scrub off all of the glue.
I'd start with a heavy scrub with a moderate degreaser such as Simple Green to remove any dirt and pollutants.
Then use MEK to remove the old glue, plasticizers that have migrated to the surface, as well as to chemically abrade the material. You'll go through a lot of MEK and rags. You want to wipe in one direction then flip the rag. After a few flips, dispose of the rag.
