How do you remove dried wallpaper paste on ceiling

I have a friends ceiling to paint,he wallpapered the walls,couple of months ago,but has left paste on ceiling,you can see it,do i spot prime with beeline sealer,or any other then put the Matt on,help much appreciated.

Again without seeing it, hard to say exactly, but if it is straight emulsion, it might be quick to sand down the shiny band around the edge that has the paste on it, with a CEROS, then spot prime with a wash coat of emulsion and then paint out the whole ceiling.

Or Gardz the whole ceiling and emulsion it.

What I wouldnt think wise, is to spot prime just over the paste with Gardz for instance, before emulsioning the ceiling, because you may be left with a shiny band under the ceiling paint.
