Rotating galaxy clusters?

At scales of galaxies there is obvious rotational motion but I am wondering if there is an example of a rotating galaxy cluster or super cluster?

The rotation could be detected by redshifts the same way it's detected for galaxies. Possibly the rotation would lead to squashing the cluster shape away from spherical due to centrifugal force.
