You really have to clean it first. It will seep through if you just paint over it.

I thought the stains would come through unless something tougher was put on it?

you can paint stain with gloss paint then when its dry overpaint with emulsion. Stain will not come through the gloss paint. i have done this with some old stains on my ceiling.
