Anyone have suggestions for removing glue from Gameboy LCD

Came across an original Gameboy DMG in not so good condition. Managed to get it working but outside the electronic issues, it looks like the previous owner tried to glue the top screen cover and dripped whatever glue they decided to use on the corner of the LCD screen. I tried to remove it with some mild products like 99% Isopropyl Alcohol, Goo Gone but no luck. I know Acetone would probably do it, but it will properly also damage the area of the LCD.

Anyone have any suggestions on a product I could possibly use to get the glue off without damaging the LCD?

Try some denatured alcohol or mineral spirits using a q-tip to gently remove and wipe away the glue.

Thanks for the suggestion I tried some denatured alcohol. It didn't work. I think whatever glue these used burned right in to the screen. Doing some research on the type of screen and the way it works, I found that there is a polarization Film on the LCD. I'm thinking maybe I can just remove it and put a replacement on. Something like this would give me a scratch free screen and no more glue....

Not sure if that would work but if it does bonus, if it doesn't, maybe get a donor or an IPS upgrade.

Update: Extreme but it worked. Managed to get the top film off without damaging the screen. Ripped the top film but I put the Gameboy together enough to power it on and see the screen working when I look through the film.
