    Went and gone confusion

    Sentence: "Hitler's plan went/gone haywire when his forces lost in Normandy, France"

    My question/doubt: Which verb/adjective went/gone would be grammatically correct in this sentence ?

    Thanks

    plan went haywire

    he's gone haywire

    "to go haywire" is an idiom that means things happened wrongly.

    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    Simple past tense is the only option here.
