NET Angular Momentum of Globular cluster of stars

Is the NET angular momentum of a globular cluster of stars, zero?
e.g. Omega Centauri or M13 for example.
Is the NET angular momentum of an elliptical galaxy and or the
central bulge of a spiral, zero or close to zero..........oblate
spheroids might have a net angular momentum if the oblate geometry
is due to rotation in a single direction. But if it's due to net
rotation 50 / 50 in two opposite directions, again, there would be
no net angular momentum, right?
provides some interesting insight and more questions as to
this general problem.
In as much as hydrogen alpha
is an indicator of the Milky Way galactic halo,
it remains fixed relative to the galaxy rotating within.
