Can we texturize then paint over the layer of glue that is left after peeling off the wallpaper?

Elizabeth asked 5 years ago

We took down wallpaper that is 30 years old and the residual glue stayed on in a layer. While trying to get the glue off with water and a spatula, we found that the top layer of sheetrock is coming off. Can we do something like texturize over the glue and then prime and paint or do we HAVE to take off all the glue first (our first time working with wallpaper removal we painted over some residual glue that we didn’t know was there and it crackled the paint).

If we texturized then painted will the glue be a problem in the future?
