Question How to get glue off a leather jacket?

I just got a leather jacket from my dad, and he had an iron on patch on the back of it and when he took it off there is still some of glue left on it and Im wondering if any one knows of any ways to get it off.

Try setting an iron to "cotton", place an old peice of fabric (old cotton shirt for instance), and re-iron the area. Hold the iron in place for about 45 seconds and see if the glue comes off into the material.
Otherwise, try a dab of lighter fluid or Goo-Gone. just do a tiney place first so you don't want to kill yourself if it's a fail.
Option #3; take it to a pro leather place or dry cleaner.
