I wish I could be more encouraging, but I suspect you're stuck with the scratches. I found this article on Popular Mechanics in which the author tries a few recommended remedies (Turtle Wax, 3M car scratch remover, Displex and glass buffing). Nothing really worked.

 

Here's an older article (from 2008) that lays out a method for removing scratches from a cell phone screen. I have no idea if this works, but according to the author, the procedure requires the use of microfiber cloth, an egg, aluminum foil and alum (a potassium aluminum sulfate sold in drugstores). 

 

Good luck. If you find something that does the trick, let us know!
