It depends on what was used to glue it. I removed vinyl from wood with 
water (after trying many petroleum-based solvents). But as concrete 
transfers moisture you probably have a non-water based glue. Also, if 
it's vinyl (many people misuse linoleum when they mean vinyl) have it 
and any glue tested for asbestos.
