not sure if it would work or not but glass polish? its for removing light scratches so it might work?

you could see if your local windscreen replacement firm has some jewellers rouge they would let you have, watch makers use it to clean watch glass.

I've tried quite a lot of things to remove the stain, but none are sucessful
I am not sure if like the glass has been worn away, so its not something you can remove

try the following lemon juice, salt and ice. stain is gone.
or try warm vingar in a spray bottle and a scrub brush loaded with baking soda. Sometimes lemon flavored Kool-Aid works well on rust stains just pour on, mist with water and let sit.

or you can use a copper brush to disloge the rust with the above
